New Kimber Owner

Greetings to All,

My (new to me) Kimber Ultra Raptor II is to be delivered to my FFL dealer tomorrow.

I'm stoked. I've always wanted a Kimber. I'm like a kid at Christmas time.

Welcome to KT from St Lou and you will just love the UCII Raptor...{stainless or blued ?}

When you get it in your hands, show us a pic and your thoughts after your first range session...

Congrats.....

I started with one almost 4 years ago...decide for yourself, there is no cure.

See proof of addiction below.

That really should not be an issue you just try to alternate between the M1 Garand and the Kimber 1911. The membership on this forum can also be helpful I think pretty much everyone here is an enabler.
